Lanyard study


25th July 2012


A recent study from Newcastle Upon Tyne hospital has highlighted the problem of microorganism colonisation on hospital badges and neck lanyards within the theatre environment. It was found that 25% of badges and lanyards were colonised with potential pathogens associated with Healthcare Associated Infections. After the introduction of Clinell Universal Wipes there was a 100% reduction in all pathogens identified such as Klebsiella, MRSA and Acinetobacter. Clinell wipes were successful in reducing colony forming units of flora by 72%. This is a fantastic result and once again highlights the effectiveness of our Universal Wipes.
